Can the wanderers be saved?

Your climbing Mt. Everest. Your almost to the top, so close. CRACK! Now your in a crevasse, alive, but not for long. You call for help, but the rescuers can’t come because it’s to dangerous. Now your left to die. How would you feel if you were put in this senecio? Do you think people should get rescued, even though they put themselves in danger? They should have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk.

” The climbers who fell into the crevasse had slipped on their descent down Emmons Glacier after hiking to Mount Rainier’s 14, 411- foot summit around 1:45 p.m. Thursday. As the two women were dangling inside the crevasse at the 13, 700- foot level, one of the other climbers was able to contact rescue rangers by cell phone.” Those two women were innocent civilians, who slipped and fell into a dangerous area. All they wanted was to be rescued, but they may not have had the chance to get rescued because of the dangers in rescuing. This is a fantastic example of how the dangerous it can be to do things like this, and may not have the opportunity to be saved.

Having to be rescued is becoming a need in today’s world. Many people think they can do anything, like they are Spider man on steroids. But many people don’t realize the many dangers in mountain climbing or any other extreme sports. ” … they are not skilled enough.Nobody doubts their strength and fitness, but they may not know enough about mountaineering and the hazards of that high altitudes present…So people can get lulled into thinking that it isn’t such an ordeal.” With peoples over dramatized feelings nowadays rescuers are more important than ever.

Rescuers are supposed to rescue right? Fore say, if a teacher came into class and said  ‘ sorry class, I just cant teach today.’ they wouldn’t be doing what they are getting paid to do, why do rescuers get paid if they sometimes don’t even do their job? In a newspaper article, Ranger Killed During Rescue of Climbers on Mount Rainier, a rescuer got killed trying to save those two women, in the previous text. This man is an excellent example of how rescuers should be. Many other rescuers would have stopped and let them die, but he got them out like a true rescuer.

With that man dying saving the two women, many people were outraged. Some people believe that if someone puts themself in danger they shouldn’t be saved. Some will use this man as an example of a way to show people that rescuing is dangerous. But the dangers are all apart of becoming a rescuer. If you thought being a rescuer would be an easy job, you wouldn’t have to do anything, then why become a rescuer?

Now that you have seen the facts, heard the argument, and smelled the tension. You know how people are and what they want to do. With their minds covered by illusions of strength, people more than ever need rescue services by their side.
